House of One is looking for young people for Georgia study trip
We are looking for 10 young people in the age between 18 and 24 who share the idea of the peaceful coexistence of the faiths of the House of One and want to attend a study trip to Tbilisi / Georgia. The study tour takes place between September 23rd and October 3rd, 2017.
The idea of the House of One, the peaceful dialogue between religions, has been lived in Georgia and the Caucasus region for 20 years by Bishop Malkhaz Songulashvili, international project ambassador of the House of One. For his diverse work for mutual respect among different religions, Bishop Malkhaz was awarded the "Shabaz Bhatti Peace Prize" in 2015.
Bishop Ilia Osepashvili is leading the Peace Academy with others. The Peace Acadamy regularly organizes youth meetings between Muslim and Christian children and youth in Georgia. They learn and live together to avoid prejudice, building friendships and relationships that have not existed before and exceed the boundaries of religions. We would like to visit, experience and shape this project in the autumn of 2017 with young people from Germany.
What is planned?
Arrival in Tbilisi, getting to know the local partners, attending the service in the Peace Cathedral, visiting the capital and excursions to the surrounding area, visiting a Muslim village in the mountains, living and living with Muslim families for about three days Excursions and walks in the country (depending on weather and interest), teach and work together with the students of the Peace Academy for two days.
The main topics are:
Design of interactive workshops with Christian and Muslim pupils within the Peace Academy
Cinematic or photographic documentation of the work of the Peace Academy
To prepare a report on the interreligious work of Bishops Malkhaz and Ilia, Bishops Rusudan, and their fellow members
Collaboration in the construction of the Peace Cathedral with Jewish and Muslim prayer rooms
What and how?
The trip will cost about 600 euros, including flight from / to Berlin, accommodation and food. We are looking for funding for those who are facing this cost burden.
